BOARD OF SELECTMEN 



The year 1988 has seen a number of priorities and initiatives pursued by the Board of Selectmen come to 
fruition. Many projects, started in prior years were substantially advanced and in some cases completed. The 
Board of Selectmen wish to recap these major achievements: 

Reducing traffic problems and improving traffic safety has been a major goal of this Board. On October 21, 
1988, the new Lake Street bridge was reopened for traffic. Under the direction of the State Department of 
Public Works, Hanover Contracting, Inc. completed the project at a cost of $1,160,000. 

In September, Traffic Systems Company, Inc. of Worcester was authorized to proceed with installation of traffic 
signals at the intersection of Richmond Street and Main Street at a cost of $93,458. Preliminary, work was 
begun in October. Substantial completion is scheduled for June 2, 1989. Traffic signalization is also proposed 
for the intersection of Burlington Avenue, Deming Way, Chestnut Street and Marion Street and the intersection at 
Route 125 and Andover Street. Signals at Burlington Avenue and Deming Way are expected to be operational by the 
end of 1989. An application under the High Hazard Elimination Program is being filed with the State for funding 
of signals on Route 125 and Andover Street. The Town is seeking to have this project listed on the fundable 
list for FY1990. 

Last year's Annual Town Meeting approved the creation of a four man traffic division in the Police Department. 
This division is responsible for monitoring town streets for motor vehicle violations. Such violations range 
from speeding to overloaded trucks. One indication of this division's impact is the decrease in motor vehicle 
accidents from 1,082 in 1987 to 980 in 1988. Increased traffic throughout the region has resulted in 
significant truck traffic on many of the Towns secondary roads. In response to citizen concerns about safety, 
"No Heavy Trucking Allowed, Per Order of the Board of Selectmen" signs were posted in the Salem Street area and 
the Lake Street area. The Board filed a request for a heavy conmercial vehicle exclusion on Salem Street with 
the State Department of Public Works 

The Board has been involved in reviewing alternative plans for reconstruction of the Town Center /Bur ling ton 
Avenue Bridge area. With the major goals of improving traffic flow through Wilmington Center, replacing the 
bridge, and revitalizing the land-uses, the Board endorsed Alternative #3 as presented by the Wilmington 
Redevelopment Authority and their consultants. This project has been placed on hold by the Massachusetts 
Department of Public Works (MDPW) . The Board is actively lobbying the MDPW to move the project forward; 
however, it appears that a bridge only option is the State's priority. 

Twelve post lamps were installed on the Town Common. The lighting ceremony held in October, honored the Rotary 
Club and Keene Lighting Products for funding this project. Public Works and Public Buildings employees were 
also honored for completing the lighting installation. 

The Board of Appeals granted Shawsheen River Estates a comprehensive permit for a two-hundred twenty unit mixed 
income development. The Board of Selectmen initially supported an application for Community Development Action 
Grant (CDAG) funds to assist the developer in financing some of the infrastructure costs. This support is 
currently on hold pending a response from the developer to a request from the Board for additional financial 
information. 

Community Opportunities Group was hired to assist the Affordable Housing Task Force in producing the Wilmington 
Housing Plan. This report provided an analysis of the Town's housing needs, goals and objectives and included 
reconmendations of strategies for affordable housing. A brochure entitled "Affordable Housing and Wilmington, 
Your Question Answered" was produced. An Affordable Housing Fair, sponsored by the task force in the fall, gave 
many residents an opportunity to learn about the issues surrounding affordable housing and options for 
addressing those issues. While the task force sponsored zoning by-laws did not receive the necessary 2/3rds 
vote at the November Special Town Meeting, several of the proposed articles received a majority vote. 

The inventory and analysis of town-owned land is nearly complete. Over 300 parcels of land have been reviewed 
and recommended for use as: locations for Affordable Housing, Open Space/Conservation, Water Department, Fire 
Department, Recreation/Athletic/Playf ield expansion and substandard sized lots for abutters. 

KIDSPLACE playground was built at the Shawsheen Street School in early June. It was accomplished through the 
coordination and cooperation of the KIDSPLACE Committee, the School Department, Department of Public Works, 
Public Buildings Department, Recreation Department, and many volunteers.

Baystate Environmental Consulting, Inc. completed a Phase I Diagnostic/Feasibility Study of Silver Lake. While 
the water quality in Silver Lake is generally good, the study did recommend several restoration measures to 
improve conditions in and around the lake. A grant for state assistance in funding the restoration plan has 
been filed with the Massachusetts Division of Water Pollution Control. 

A major victory was achieved as the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority eliminated Wilmington from its list 
of sites proposed for location of a composting/combusting facility. The Board thanks each member of the Sludge 
Siting Task Force and the residents, who actively lobbyed on the Town's behalf. 

Community Television, Inc., a non-profit cable television access corporation, was organized this year. Philip 
Ramasci was hired as General Manager to oversee operations. The cable television company will operate out of 
the basement of the Swain School. A major responsibility of the corporation will be to provide coverage of town 
events such as Special Town Meetings, Annual Town Meetings, School Committee Meetings and Selectmen's Meetings. 
Limited programing is expected to begin in April. 

A subcomnittee of the Board is actively negotiating with the Reading Municipal Light Commissioners to reach a 
settlement of the Wilmington versus RMLD dispute. Progress is being made towards resolution of this dispute. 

In an effort to address parking problems at the North Wilmington MBTA train depot, the Town will be starting a 
parking ticket program in July, 1989. Residents will be given free tickets to park. Non-residents will be 
excluded from the lot. 

We have had an active and productive year. In the upcoming year, the Board will continue to solicit your 
comnents and suggestions for improving the quality of life in Wilmington. Traffic congestion, affordable 
housing, open/recreational space and recycling are some of the issues which we believe are important and deserve 
the Board's time and effort.

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Wilmington: 

In searching for a suitable quote to characterize 1988, I turned to a short but apt saying attributed to Thomas 
P. "Tip" O'Neil, III, former Speaker of the United States House of Representatives: 

"All Politics is Local" 

There is no better living example of this than a New England community governed by open town meeting form of 
government and Wilmington is a good reflection of "Tip's" principle. 

Actually, Wilmington is a living dynamic in which the various roles of the Town Fathers, Town Administration, 
Free Press, Town Meeting and Electorate are balanced to the betterment of our community. No one element can get 
too far afield because "all politics is local" acts as the great equalizer and constantly reminds us that we all 
eventually answer to the citizens of Wilmington. 

In 1988 our local affairs were punctuated by five town meetings, the Annual Town Meeting witnessed the passage 
of the FY-1989 budget totalling $32,134,023. This was an increase of 7% over the FY-1988 budget. The budget 
funded many new items and programs including the four man traffic division in the Police Department, the 
replacement senior citizen van, and the sum of $150,000 to provide technical assistance in our fight against the 
Reading Municipal Light Commissioners. The Town Meeting also approved Chapter 40, Sec. 21D, which allows town 
departments to issue tickets rather than summonses for bylaw violations. The Town was given the authority to 
purchase two small parcels of land: Burlington Avenue at Harris Street - to be used to straighten Burlington 
Avenue; and Main Street and Route 129 (Richmond Street), for the installation of traffic signals. Also, Hanover 
Street and Mystic Avenue were voted to be improved by the betterment program. In fact, the Department of Public 
Works upgraded the roads prior to the end of 1988. 

At the Special Town Meetings there were several highlights, including a vote to disapprove the actions of the 
Great and General Court which divided the Town of Wilmington into three separate representative districts. In 
that same vein, the Town Meeting also voted to direct it's incumbent representatives and senator to vote against 
the division of Wilmington into three representative districts. However, as symbolic as these actions were, the 
House and the Senate had approved the redistricting plan in early 1988 and these unanimous actions were simply a 
local reaction to what many considered Beacon Hill interference in our local affairs. 

At the June 20th Special Town Meeting, the Wilmington Housing Authority proposed to rezone 37 acres of town 
owned land at the Wilmington/Woburn line on So. Main Street from industrial (GI) to residential (R-10). In 
addition, they requested approval from Town Meeting to permit the Selectmen to sell them this parcel for the 
construction of affordable housing. This attempt was defeated. The Town's Affordable Housing Task Force, in 
turn, promised the voters that they would return to a town meeting with a proposal for affordable housing. 

At the November 14th Special Town Meeting, the Affordable Housing Task Force proposed various changes to the 
zoning bylaw including a revised planned residential development zone, inclusionary housing bonuses, and 
accessory apartments. After much work by the task force and a considerable debate at the Town Meeting these 
changes did not prevail. Also at this meeting, the School Committee received the necessary 9/lOths vote to 
secure passage for the sum of $122,412 to cover a deficit in their FY-1987 budget. In addition the School 
Committee's membership was changed from six to seven members; so in April, 1989 an opening will exist for an 
additional School Committee member. An attempt to elect the Board of Selectmen by precincts or districts was 
not approved. The Town Meeting did support the addition of the Planning Director position for the Planning 
Board. 

During the year there were several accomplishments that must be recognized: 

The High School varsity baseball field was completely rebuilt including permanent dugouts, 
fencing and underground water sprinkler system. New alumunimum bleachers and a press box 
were installed at the High School track and football field complex. This facility will seat 
2,000 spectators; plus, it is handicapped accessible. 



-4- 



Tennis courts at the North Intermediate School were completely refurbished. The tennis 
courts at the Shawsheen School will be completed in the spring of 1989. 

o A successful household harzardous waste collection day was held in December and nearly 300 
households participated. 

o The Board of Assessors successfully completed their triannual real estate revaluation/update 
which was certified by the Department of Revenue in September. This enabled real estate tax 
bills to be sent out in October. 

o All town boards, committees and departments were asked to participate in a strategic 

management process which studied the Town's strengths and weaknesses and looked into the 
future to identify five issues of importance for the Town: 

a. Additional school facilities 

b. Performance of Town employees 

c. Financial character 

d. Surburban character and 

e. Affordable housing 

A report will be given at the 1989 Annual Town Meeting to summarize the strategic management 
progress. 

There were several personnel changes during the year. I am sad to report that Roy P. McClanahan, 
Superintendent of Public Buildings, passed away. He was replaced by Roger J. Lessard. Marion C. Murphy 
retired as Collector/Treasurer after thirty-one years with the Town and she was replaced by Joseph R. Peters 
with the new title of Finance Director. 

The year 1988 was one of accomplishment for the town. We witnessed progress on every front as seen by 
improvements to our public facilities and to townwide beautif ication; new postlamps on the common and 
energy efficient windows at the High School are but a few examples. I believe that we have paid attention 
to details and have provided the residents of Wilmington with quality public services. This could not be 
accomplished without the leadership and support of the Board of Selectmen, and the volunteers who serve on 
all of the town's boards, conmittees and commissions. The high quality public services that we deliver are 
performed by our hard working volunteers and town employees. It is through the professionalism and 
dedication of each and every individual employee that Wilmington has become a better place to live and to 
work. 

Thank you for your support during 1988 and I look forward to new challenges in 1989.

Police Department 



In accordance with the By-Laws of the Town of Wilmington, I hereby respectfully submit the Annual Report on the 
activities of the Wilmington Police Department for the year of 1988. 

The enclosed statistical report represents the total for all crimes, complaints and incidents reported during the 
year 1988; and, for the most part the corresponding enforcement efforts of the Wilmington Police Department. 
During 1988 the total number of complaints and incidents reported to the police department decreased by 17% from 
13,029 incidents in 1987 to 10,787 during 1988. For the most part these decreases were in the areas of minor 
crimes and service related incidents. Also some of the serious crime categories decreased significantly during 
1988. Breaking and Entering into homes and buildings were reduced by 34% from 85 incidents in 1987 to 56 during 
1988. This follows a 12% reduction in 1987 and a 20% decrease in these crimes during 1986. Totals for Assaults 
and Batteries were unchanged from the total for 1987; however, threats to bum or bomb which are reported under 
this group increased by 18 incidents, this follows a 42% decrease in these crimes during 1987. Motor vehicles 
stolen in Wilmington decreased by 22% from 74 in 1987 to 58 in 1988. Due to the reductions in the major crime 
categories, the Uniform Crime Reports compiled by the State and Federal Governments will again show a reduction 
in the crime rates for the Town of Wilmington during 1988. The 1987 Uniform Crime Reports which were released in 
January, 1989 showed a 11.8% reduction in the crime rate for the Town of Wilmington. The 1987 crime rate of 17.4 
index crimes per 1,000 residence is based upon a total of 313 index crimes, 11 violent crimes and 302 property 
crimes. This follows a reduction of 33% in the crime rate for 1986. 

Motor Vehicle Accidents and Traffic congestion continues to be a serious Community problem; and, during 1988 the 
police department experienced a significant decrease in the motor vehicle accident rate. During 1988 motor 
vehicle accidents decreased by 102 accidents from 1,082 accidents in 1987 to 980 during 1988. The police 
deparment continued to place a high priority on the enforcement of motor vehicle violations during 1988. During 
1988 the department cited 7,931 motor vehicle violations. This represents an increase of 87% over the violations 
cited during 1987. The following are the totals for some of the major areas of concern: Speeding violations, 
3,945; operators license violation, 516; unregistered and uninsured, 208 and, miscellaneous violations, 3,106. 
Arrest for operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol were decreased by 26 from 114 in 1987 to 88 
during 1988. 

Arrest for crimes other than motor vehicle offenses during 1988 totaled 733. During 1988 the police department 
continued to place a high priority on alcohol and drug related offenses. As a result, arrest for liquor law 
violations totaled 286 and there was a total of 60 narcotics arrests during 1988. The department placed a total 
of 163 persons under Protective Custody. A total of 1,174 persons were taken into custody by the police 
department during 1988. As a result of the increased enforcement efforts by the department. The fine monies 
returned to the Town of Wilmington from the Wobum District Court increased from $211,758 in 1987 to $280,820 
during 1988. 

The department makes note of personnel changes during 1988. Four new officers were appointed to the police 
department during 1988. They were Officers Joseph F. Harris, Jr., Joseph A. Desmond, Gregory Famkoff and 
Michael R. Begonis. Also appointed as a Reserve Intermittent was Officer Chester A. Bruce, III. Considering the

Emergency Management 



The Wimington Emergencey Management Agency (MEWA) is located in the basement of the old Town Hall, 219 
Middlesex Avenue, (Across from the Congregational Church). The Goals of Wilmington Emergency Management 
Agency are to supply needed services to the citizens of Wilmington. This covers a wide spectmn of needs, 
from furnishing personnel and radio communications to assist at check points for the Annual Walk-A-Thon, to 
providing mobile units equipped with radio, telephone and packet capabilities to assist the Police 
Department on Halloween, to providing divers to the Town as well as limited shelter capabilities and 
supplies. 

The agency continues to have a very active radio communications group supervised by Doug Chisholm and Herb 
Nickerson. The base station for the agency is located at the N.Y.N.E.X. Tower located at the junction of 
Rte. 129 and Rte. 38. Our radio communications are equal if not superior to that of the 85 communities 
which comprise area-1, Mass. Civil Defense. Wilmington is the net control for 19 communities, handling 
emergency communication between the communities and area-1. Wilmington also has the distinction of being 
the back up communications for area-1. In the event area-1 is unable to carry out their communication role, 
Wilmington will take over as the emergencey back up handling the entire emergency communications between the 
85 communities that comprise area - and the Massachusetts State Civil Defense Headquarters located in 
Framingham. 

The dive team under the direction of William Gable and Robert Larivee is still is still a viable element of 
the agency. At present there are three fully equipped divers. 

It is my sincere hope that budget constraints will ease in the future to allow the equipping of a rescue 
team. I thank Jack Morrison and Steve Laravee for their steadfast support. 

The Wilmington Emergency Management Agency extends its thanks and appreciation to all that have supported 
its growth and development it continues to be my privilege to serve the Town of Wilmington as tte 
coordinator of the Emergency Management Agency.

of the Town Hall. Office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with the Senior Clerk 
available to assist the public with general inquiries and to schedule appointments for the Board's weekly Tuesday 
evening meetings. John Garrett was appointed in January, 1988, as the newest member. In September, 1988, Sandra 
Murphy resigned as the Planning Coordinator and her replacement, Linda Waterman, was hired in November as the 
Planning Board's Senior Clerk. Throughout this year the Board has received technical assistance from the newly 
appointed Town Engineer, Harold Gillam. 

SUBDIVISION CONTROL: 

Under the authority vested in the Planning Board of the Town of Wilmington by Section 81-Q of Chapter 41 of the 
General Laws, the Board reviewed the following subdivision plans: 

Wedgewood Avenue Extension Preliminary Plan - fee for submission of proposed 4 lot residential 
subdivision approved with conditions. 

o Partridge Lane Preliminary Plan - fee for submission of proposed 2 lot high density business 
subdivision approved with conditions. 

o Carter Estates Definitive Plan - final fee for submission of proposed 4 lot residential 
subdivision approved. 

o Amherst Road Definitive Plan - final fee for submission of proposed 9 lot residential 
subdivision approved with conditions. 

o Burt Road Preliminary Plan - fee for submission of proposed industrial subdivision, land area 
primarily in Andover, approved with conditions. 

o Partridge Lane Definitive Plan - final fee for submission of proposed 2 lot high density 
business subdivision approved with conditions. 

o Marion Street Preliminary Plan - fee for submission of proposed 8 lot residential subdivision 
approved with conditions. 

o Wedgewood Avenue Extension Definitive - fee for submission of proposed 4 lot residential 
subdivision disapproved with conditions. 

o River Park 93 Definitive - fee for submission of proposed 7 lot industrial subdivision land area 
primarily in North Reading decision pending. 

The Planning Board collected a total of $8,484.98 in the calendar year of 1988 in filing fees from the submission 
of the following subdivision plans. These fees were turned over to the General Fund Account. 

Forty-five (45) plans believed not to require approval were submitted: The Planning Board found that 40 plans 
did not require approval under the Subdivision Control Law and therefore were endorsed; 2 plans were found to 
require approval and therefore were denied for cause; 2 plans were withdrawn without prejudice; 1 plan was 
endorsed by the Town Clerk. • k

Redevelopment Authority 



In 1988 the Wilmington Redevelopment Authority (WRA) saw Sidney Kaizer re-elected to another five-year term 
by the voters of Wilmington and C. Nicki Johnson resigning as the Governor's appointee as of October, 1988 
due to her relocation to Florida. The officers of the WRA are as follows: Jay Donovan, Chairman; Carl 
Backman, Jr., Vice Chairman; Vaughn Surprenant, Treasurer; and Sidney Kaizer, Assistant Treasurer. 

During the past year, the WRA worked closely with the Board of Selectmen and the residents of Wilmington to 
j review traffic and development alternatives for the Town Center. Based upon the work completed by the 
I Authority's consultants, the WRA recommended that Alternative III be chosen as the way to deal with the 
' traffic, bridge safety and town center issues at the intersection of Routes 38 and 62. The Board of 
Selectmen also voted to endorse Alternative III aftd requested a meeting with Coinnissioner Jane Garvey of the 
Massachusetts Department of Public Works (MDPW) to discuss the next steps in the 251 Design Review Phase. 
The WRA hired Bruce Campbell, former MDPW Commissioner, in September to follow the Town Center project 
through the process in MDPW, to suggest necessary actions to improve traffic flow from Middlesex Avenue to 
the Tewksbury town line and to outline measures needed in other parts of the Town to alleviate traffic 
problems, particularly those related to residential streets. Since entering into contract with WRA, Bruce 
Campbell has worked closely with Michael Matt (staff consultant to the WRA) and the Town Manager to keep the 
WRA and Board of Selectmen informed on the progress of Alternative III through the internal review process 
at MDPW. Members of the legislative delegation were also kept informed of the progress of the Town Center 
Project. It is expected that the meeting with Commissioner Garvey will take place early in 1989 and that 
progress on this important project will continue. 

Besides the work undertaken on the Town Center Project, the Town of Wilmington continues to reap the 
benefits of its investment in the Jewel Industrial Park more than 20 years ago. At the end of 1988, there 
were seven businesses operating in Jewel Park employing a total of 784 workers. Based ipon Fiscal Year 1988 
data provided by the Assessor's Office, the total assessed value of the park was $20,222,900 and the annual 
tax revenue to the Town of Wilmington totalled $323,768.63.

Board of Health 



The Board of Health consists of three members appointed by the Tovm Manager for three year terms. Serving 
on the Board throughout 1988 were: Dr. James Ficociello, D.D.S., One Fletcher Lane; Joseph Paglia, 101 
Nichols Street; Milton Calder, 14 Hobson Avenue. The Director of Public Health is Gregory P. Erickson R.S., 
C.H.O., and the Public Health Nurse is Abbie Radley. The secretarial staff (which is shared with the 
Building Inspector) is Joan Goulet and Linda Robinson, who replaces Margaret Tarantino. Margaret now works 
in the office of the Town Manager. In addition, part-time help has been employed as needed to cover some of 
the field inspections required. 

The annual Rabies Clinic was held at the Department of Public Works on Andover Street. 

Moving ahead with our goal for monitoring the hazardous chemicals within the Town, the Director has been 
working with the Local Emergency Planning Committee in developing the Emergency Response Plan for the Town 
of Wilmington. This includes a detailed list of all extremely hazardous substances within the town, and the 
resources available to respond to any contingency. 

The annual town-wide flu clinic was held on Sunday, November 6. The clinic was held later than usual due to 
a delay in receiving vaccine, however, it was still well attended. The total number of flu shots given was 
688 which included town-wide clinic, senior citizens clinics at the Buzzell Center, home visits, office 
visits, town employees and school employees. Pneumonia vaccine shots totaling 16 were given by appointment 
at office visits. 

In March the Board of Health Nurse in cooperation with the Regional Health Center provided cholesterol 
screening at the school health fair for three days. The fair was well attended by students, teachers and 
townspeople. The cholesterol screening was a popular station and many people were nade aware of their 
cholesterol levels so they might correct high levels. Total number of cholesterol screenings done was 355. 

In April the Board of Health Nurse cooperated with the school nurses in providing a T.D. and Tuberculin 
testing clinic for senior high school students, an important service for students planning to continue on to 
college, for those going into the work force or homemaking. 

The Nurse met with the fitness committee this year to help in selecting a provider for a voluntary fitness 
program for town employees, "a program whose time has come". 

There are 140 participants in the cardiovascular risk program which includes tests on the Kodak DT60 
Analyzer Machine, an increase of almost 50 percent over last year. This program provides an important 
"wellness" service to the townspeople. 

The Director, Gregory Erickson, has been elected to a one year term as Vice President of the Massachusetts 
Health Officers Association. 

On December 27th, Ann FitzGerald, R.N., B.S.N. , was employed to replace Abbie Radley, who is retiring on 
Jauary 6, 1989. We are grateful for the many years of service which Abbie has given to the Town and we wish 
her the best in her retirement. She will be missed by all.

Historical Commission 



The Wilmington Historical Commission continued its town-wide program of historical preservation by obtaining 
the services of Northfields Preservation Associates. Their representative helped us to complete our 
town-wide survey of historical buildings and homes; and National Historic Registration of qualifying public 
buildings. The Commission has formally applied to have the West School recognized on the National Historic 
Register. 

Application has been made, with the help of Representative James R. Miceli's office, for Federal Survey and 
Planning funds to be matched by the Town. It is anticipated these funds will be used for the Wilmington 
Center Village National Historic District Project. 

With the help of the Public Buildings Department, a new sign was erected at the Hamden Tavern to replace 
the one which was stolen. Gutters were replaced on the Tavern; and the roof of the Carriage House was 
repaired. 

The Commission began a program of photographing and cataloging articles in the Tavern. We accepted the 
following gifts: a junior rope bed; a pewter tray, tankard and porringer. 

The Hamden Tavern Open House program continued on the first Sunday of each month. In conjunction with 
these Open Houses, the Friends of the Hamden Tavern held successful Strawberry, Harvest and Christinas 
I socials. 

We with to thank Foster Balser for recording a proposed guide tour of the Tavern; now being prepared by the 
Commission. 

The Commission welcomed Mr. and Mrs. Joshua Winant as new tenants of the Tavem. 

' The Historic Plaque program continues with more historical plaques being prepared through a joint effort 
I between the Commission and the Wilmington High School Art Department. 

I Memberships in the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Historic Massachusetts have been renewed. 
I Our members attended various seminars throughout the state. 

The Wilmington Historical Commission wishes to thank prior members, Bemard McMahon and Robert Wright for 
their years of service; and welcomes new members, Michael Bridges and Jean Ryle. 

The Commission has changed its meeting time and location to the second Monday of the month at the Town Hall, 
Room 4. 

The Conmiss ion's thanks are extended to the many Wilmington Town Departments vdio have assisted us throughout

Recreation Department 



Wilmington's Recreation Department continued to provide a wide variety of leisure time activities for local 
citizens during calendar year 1988. 

Although our department is relatively small, with only two full time employees, it represents the second 
largest industry in the nation. In fact, Americans spend about 12 percent of their personal income on 
recreat ion . 

The Recreation Coranission consists of five volunteer citizens appointed by the Town Manager. This board 
functions in a policy making and advisory capacity to the director. 

The Recreation Coranission and Director keep in mind the following departmental objectives as they plan and 
conduct recreation programs throughout the year: 

To provide opportunities for self expression. 
To develop a sense of personal worth. 

To provide activities that allow for personal achievement and accomplishment 
To provide activities that are fun and enjoyable. 

To provide physical activities which are new and different, offering a certain amount of challenge to 
participants. 

To teach skills in various activities that will have carry-over value in later life. 
To provide a healthful and diversified program of recreation activities in an 
attempt to meet the needs and interests of the people being served. 

Our total funding comes from a variety of sources. User fees and donations heavily supplement the town 
funded budget which was decimated by the effects of Prop. 2 1/2 several years ago. Volunteers always play a 
key role in providing two dollars worth of service for every dollar spent. We receive much help from local 
clubs and organizations. Some of these invaluable contributors are: Rotary, Kiwanis Club, Lions Club, 
Police Association, Sons of Italy, Elks, Camp 40 Acres, Special Needs PAC, Custodial Union, Town Employees 
Association, Chamber of Commerce and Pepsi. Along with the support we get from the above is the assistance 
given from such civic minded businesses as: Compugraphic, Massbank for Savings, Charles River, F 5 R Auto 
Supply, Rocco's, Dunkin Donuts, Town Crier, McDonalds, Realty World, Analog, Keene Lighting, Lowell Si 
Savings Bank, Polaroid, Avco, Stelios, and BayBank. 

The Recreation Department is involved, in varying degrees, with many recreation oriented projects and 
groups. In this nature we serve as a quasi-consulting agency. We also loan equipment to families and 
groups of all types for various functions. 

Our basic programs are: Santa's workshop, Horribles Parade, Special Kids Christmas Party, Christmas 
shopping in New York City, spring trip to New York City, Basketball League, Men's Basketball, Mens' Gym, 
Swimming Lessons, Swim-A-Cross , CPR, First Aid, Ski Lessons, Punt Pass § Kick Contest, Gymnastics, Ladies 
Fitness, Cinema Discounts, Other Commercial Recreation Enterprise Discount Coupons, Sesame Street Live at 
the Boston Garden, Special Needs Gym Program, Boat Cruise to Provincetown, Florida Discounts, T-Ball, Group 
trip to Disney World, Easter Egg Hunts, Circus trip to Boston Garden, Bruins tickets, Topsfield Fair 
Discount Tickets, Summer Playground, Tiny Tots, Special Needs Day Camp, Public Beach Supervision, Canoe 
Rental and Clinic, Crane's Beach Day, Teen Trips to Hampton Beach, Tennis Lessons, Concerts on the Common, 
Red Sox Trips, Sport Clinics, Fishing Derby, Self Defense, Co-ed Volley Ball, Disney on Ice Trip, Free Loan 
of Fishing, Canoeing, Soccer, Aerobics and Hawaii VCR Tapes, Police Association Beach Day, Newport, RI trip, 
Easter Coloring Contest, Sale of Entertainment Discount Guides, Little Red Wagon Drama Show, Special Needs 
Rodeo and Circus Trips. 

Other groups that offer leisure type programs in Wilmington are: Little League, Council on Aging, Pony 
League, Youth Hockey, Pop Warner, Figure Skating Club, Men's Softball, Square Dancing, Youth Soccer, Tennis 
Club, July 4th Coinnittee, Community Schools, Council for the Arts, Scouts, and Campfire. Schools and 
churches round out the active recreation picture. 

There is an obvious lack of commercial recreation facilities in Wilmington such as bowling centers and movie 
theatres. The Town also lacks youth serving agencies such as YMCA's, YWCA's, Boys and Girls Clubs. The 
addition of the new Rink is a great plus. This void stresses the importance for town support of various 
leisure oriented programs. 



-37- 



Wilmington does have many fine natural areas where outdoor activities may be pursued. Silver Uke is our 
most important such asset offering a variety of aquatic sports from swimming, canoeing and sailing to 
skating and fishing in the winter months. The Town Park hill provides an excellent area for sledding during 
the long winter. The large number of conservation and water department lands provide an extremely healthful 
environment for man and animal alike. These protected properties allow for passive recreation such as 
nature study or bird watching. 

Camp 40 Acres is used by various youth and scouting groups and is a private wooded facility. We use this 
area for our summer special needs day camp. The Town Forest, Town Park, Comnon with gazebo, school 
playgrounds, and an abundance of tennis courts, many with lights, are available to all. The fitness trail 
at the Regional Health Center is a popular facility, too. 

The outdoor recreation area at Glen Road, Town Hall is being developed as a family area. New and modem 
playground equipment was installed in 1985. School grounds also are being improved steadily throughout the 
Town. A memorial "play area" in memory of Jason Stephenson was developed within the Rotary Park confines. 
Pop Warner spearheaded an improvement project for the Glen Road Recreation Area. Kidsplace at the Shawsheen 
School is an appealing and unique play area. It was completed in 1988. 

The Recreation Director and Commission thank those many individuals and groups who help produce a final 
recreation product which is a model to many surrounding coninunities. 



Veterans' Agent 



The Wilmington Veterans' Agent respectfully submits his Annual Report for the year 1988. Paul A. Farrell, 
Veterans' Agent and the limited part-time services of Diane Peters as clerk. 

Veterans' Services is governed by the General Laws of Massachusetts, Chapter 115 as amended with strict 
compliance to this Chapter, the rules and policies of which govern the disbursement of aid. 

Benefits are for the needy Veteran and his immediate family who have been subject to unforeseen needs. 
Final approval of benefits comes from the Commissioner of Veterans' Services, Boston, Massachusetts. 

The balance of the first six months of 1988 from previous appropriations was $7,939.89, total available 
funds beginning July 1, 1988 was $13,000, total expended for aid to Veterans' families for the entire year 
was $3,785.61. Total reimbursement for 1987 from settled assignments and/or accident cases authorized by 
the Coimnissioner's Office was $388.00. The total amount has been turned over to the Town Treasurer and the 
Commonwealth has been notified so adjustments of any monies can be made before State reimbursement to the 
Town. 

This department deals continually with new and changing benefits and/or laws pertaining to Social Security, 
V.A. Disability, Pension, Compensations and G.I. Education or on the job training; plus, aiding applicants 
for S.S.I. , unemployment due to strikes, shutdowns and lack of work, always has an impact on expenditures. 
Case load varies from time to time. 

The appropriation for 1988 and six months of 1989 was $13,000 as voted at the Annual Town Meeting, a balance 
of $12,023.59 forwarded for the first six months of 1989.

Library Director 



The annual report of the Memorial Library with its compilation of statistics for 1988 is submitted herewith: 

The role of the library has been a traditional one which is to provide access to books and materials to meet the 
educational, recreational and informational needs of the town; to provide personal service, assistance and 
guidance in the choice and use of these materials; to promote the usage of total resources; and, to advance 
library service. 

Reference, including Inter-Library Loan activity, shows the growing interdependence of Merrimack Valley Library 
Consortium Members upon the availability of books and materials from network libraries. The library staff 
educated the public in the use of the four public access terminals installed during 1988. Our users are now able 
to search our own collections either by card catalog, or by terminal. The town's continued participation in the 
MVLC library network continues to be beneficial. 

1988 proved to be an excellent year for the Technical Services Department. Backlogs were cleared as more 
materials were entered into the data base. Processing time was greatly reduced. Materials now get on the 
shelves sooner, and into the hands of the public quicker. New ordering procedures now help process reserve 
requests on popular items sooner. 

The Circulation Department reports an increase in the circulation to more senior citizens, and retired people. 
The retired people seem to have become aware of the many services the library has to offer, and the large 
selection of Large Print books in the Library's collection. Special gifts have permitted an expansion of 
holdings in the areas of health and handicapped services. 

The Children's Department had a most successful "Safari Summer." Story hour registrations reached an all time 
high. Children's progranming was expanded. The hours for the Children's Department were expanded, and are now 
uniform with the Adult Department. The staff was expanded, and a core of trained teenage volunteers also 
assisted in delivering Children's Services. 

The goals of the library are being met: The staff continues to educate the public in the use of public access 
terminals; it provides more inter-library loan services; it has expanded its children's programming and hours of 
service; and, has evaluated various technical procedures relating to the acquisition of and processing of library 
materials. 

The achievement of these goals is due to the efforts of the library staff, and town support. 1989 ought to see 
further realization of the Library's service goals.

Conservation Commission 



While continuing its 25 year history of protecting Wilmington's natural resources, the Conservation Commission 
received two new members in 1988, Jean M. Locicero and Margaret Carson. The Commission also said good-bye to 
four past nembers this year with appreciation for many yars of dedicated service. They are Chester Bruce, Robert 
LaVita, Joan Sadowski and Joseph Guzzo. 

The Board currently holds public meetings on the first and third Wednesday of the month at 7:30 p.m. at the Town 
Hall, Room 6. The Conmission and/or staff also held membership or assocation with: Massachuetts Association of 
Conservation Commissions, Conservation Law Foundation, Ipswich River Watershed Association, Massachusetts Audubon 
Society, Environmental Lobby of Massachsuetts and Massachsuetts Society of Municipal Conservation Professionals. 

As part of its education outreach initiative, the Commission published two brochures describing Conservation Land 
in Wilmington. Additionally, the Administrator spoke to a local Boy Scout Troop and provided written articles 
for the Town Crier, On two occasions, the Commission hosted Massachusetts Department of Bivironmental Quality 
Engineering Workshops for Conmissioners from around the state. 

New projects this year included a schedule of internal, self-taught, seminars for the Commission members on a 
variety of wetland protection issues. A subcommittee of the Board has begun a "Conservation Land Interest" plan 
to identify all properties vAiich demonstrate significance for protection of natural resources. Using this plan, 
the Conmission will pursue land acquisition or other protection methods for identified properties. Another 
subcomnittee has undertaken a review and update of the Conmission Operating By-law to better serve the needs of 
the community. 

During 1988, the Conservation staff and Board members have participated in, or have advised, on many Town 
Projects. These include the Local Emergency Planning Committee, Affordable Housing Task Force, Town-Owned Land 
Study, Town Comnon Project, Strategic Management Plan and the North Wilmington Water Stand Pipe, among others. 

In December the Town hired Donald Penney as a part-time Conservation Intern/Ranger to assist with improvement and 
management of Conservation Land. He joins the part-time clerk, Virginia Lemos and full-time Conservation 
Administrator, Elizabeth Sabounjian who welcome the public to visit the Town Hall office weekdays from 8:30 a.m. 
to 4:30 p.m. 

The Conservation Conmission extends appreciation to the Selectmen, Town Manager and other Town Departments and 
Boards who have given so much support and cooperation to the Commission. Also, special acknowledgement is given 
to Mr. William B. Ritter of Casselberry, Florida, for the donation of 3/4 acre of land to the Town for 
Conservation purposes. The Commission encourages everyone who may want to consider preserving their property in 
a natural state to contact the office. 

By working together, all residents of Wilmington may be guaranteed beautiful open spaces for the future.

Council on Aging 



The year 1988 was a busy one for the Council on Aging under the leadership of Chairman Grace Kirkland. Many 
improvements have been made for the safety and health of the increasing number of senior citizens in the 
Town. 

In July, our old minibus was replaced by a new one. It has been lettered to be recognized by the people of 
the Town as an available means of transporting senior citizens. A new enclosure has been added to the 
cellar entrance. In response to many people who have had a difficult time finding our building, signs have 
been posted on School Street, entering the parking lot and building. Fans have been installed in the 
bathrooms, ceramic area and the card room. The new windows installed by the carpenters from Local #41 last 
year, have been trimmed inside the building by one of our volunteer senior carpenters, Joseph Filipowicz. 
The stairs leading to the Swain School parking lot have been repaired. 

We added another service that will be an advantage to our seniors; we replaced the old osbolete cardboard 
Senior Citizen cards with a laminated photo I.D. card. This card will identify the person as a Wilmington 
Senior Citizen. It will contain the name of the person, their address, date of birth and Social Security 
number. As many of the elderly women do not drive, it can also be used as a second I.D. when called for. 

To reach out to more of our seniors this year, we also drafted up a Council on Aging brochure. It contains 
all information on vrtiat is available to a person 60 years and older at the Buzzell Senior Citizen Center. 
We added pictures for those with difficulty reading. Arthur Spellenberg of Hampshire Press made up 5,000 
copies of these brochures as a donation to the Council on Aging. 

Two more activity programs to keep our seniors as active as we can have been added to the other activity 
programs we already have. A Shop Class is being instructed by volunteer Joseph Filipowicz, a talented 
wood-worker. An Art Class' is taught by volunteer Ella Perkins, a professional art teacher. 

As we compared this year's total of services rendered to the seniors with last year's, we realized the 
government statistics released last year in regards to the alarming rate the elderly population is growing 
has been proven in Wilmington. This year we: 

Transported by minibus to medical and other elderly related travel 7,792 

Delivered hot meals through the shut-in lunch program 14,580 

Served at the congregated lunch site 5,837 

Seniors volunteer hours donated through peer-support 9,829 

Special holiday dinners to our frail and disabled, delivered by volunteers 331 

We reached out through our thereapeutic socials to 2,438 

Miles travelled delivering the shut-ins daily meals 15,462 

Telephone calls received into the center for help or information 7,829 

Respite Care Servicer hours given to ill, frail and disabled seniors 1,040 

Weekly newspaper columns written and published in the Town Crier, Advertiser and the Suburban News 52 

Photo I.D, cards 450 

Applications for fuel, weatherization and oil burner repairs 161 

Seniors eaitering the center for help or socialization 22,702 

To the following we extend our thanks for funds, enabling us to deliver the above services: 

The taxpayers for approving our budget. 

Community Teamwork, Inc. for paying for fuel, oil burner repairs and weatherization $164,626 

Minuteman Home Care for homemakers, hospice services and chore workers 140,692

roofs for low-income elders living alone. 3,500

estimated value 600 

We also thank for his help and support our Town Manager, Buzz Stapczynski, Representative Jim Miceli for his help 
in getting needed assistance for our seniors through State agencies and for his support on our grant 
application. Diamond Crystal Salt Co. for napkins and sugar supplies through the year. Also the Yum Yum Shop, 
Plate Escape, Flower Stop, Rotary, Kiwanis and Lions' Clubs, the Tewksbury /Wilmington Elks, DECA Students, and 
the Maple Meadow Gardens for all their donations to us. The Maintenance, Public Buildings, Police and Fire 
Departments for their help. To all who helped us in any way make the lives of the Wilmington elder residents 
better in 1988, we are very grateful.

Council for the Arts 



Iran Arts Center housed in the Old Town Hall, the Wilnington Council for the Arts continued to provide art 
pigrajBS for the coaaunity throughout 1988. The building which dates from 1845 and is one of the loveliest 
ar most gracious relics of Wilmington's past, has now become a warn and viable resource vAiere artistic and 
citural evens nay be brought to the whole coanunity. The place vrtiere the conmunity can gather for many 
viied happCTiings: art exhibitions, concerts, art classes, music lessons, crafts, arts demonstrations, both 
pfforaing and visual, rehearsals, and a possible art auction. 

Irl988, the Council for the Arts distributed funds allocated by the Massachusetts Arts Lottery in grants 
ai scholarships. These distributions are made after careful screening of applicants by the Council. They 
ai governed by guidelines set forth by the state together with rules of the local council. This year the 
Cmcil was able to grant scholarships to three High School seniors: Jennifer Campbell, Heather Cram and 
Jceph E. Linehan. A local poet, Francis Toohey, also received a grant. They were happy to aid the 
tcented Jeffrey Murphy travel to Japan to perform in concert with the Greater Boston Youth Symphony 
Othestra. l*vler the aegis of the Wilmington Council, the Massachusetts Arts Lottery Council approved funds 
ft the West Intermediate School, the High School Photography class, the Wilmington Women's Club, and the 
Nimington Library Miseum PASS Fund Coomittee. Because of this PASS program (Performing Arts Students 
S<ies) six elementary classes will have had the op>portunity to attend stage productions in Boston. 

Though efforts of the town, a long-awaited security system has been installed. The Center will now be able 
tcprovide a seoire environment for a permanent art collection as well as valuable pieces such as a very 
fie used organ purchased in late suMer. It is hoped that a teacher of organ music may be found vdio will 
siply lessons in this art form in the near future. A very vital addition will be a handicapped access. 

Caiunity Schools meet in the Center weekly as does the Merrimack Valley Chapter of the Sweet Adelines. 
Cisses in oil painting, taught by Lorraine Stevens were held in the Center and were we 11 -attended. 

Iran effort to keep well-informed, council members have attended state workshops in Lowell and Andover and 
"tnvention 88" held at the >tiseimi of Fine Arts by the Local Arts Lottery Councils Executive Board.

Housing Authority 



rhis has been an exciting and busy year for the Wilmington Housing Authority. The Modernization program for 
the for 40 units of elderly housing at Deming Way was completed in January, 1988. The 40 units were 
completely insulated, painted, new tile flooring and carpet was installed, as well as new front and back 
combination storm doors being installed. Plumbing and tile repairs were done as needed to each unit. The 
Wilmington Housing Authority again extends their thanks to Betty Keough for her time during and after the 
renovation of these units, which proved to be a real challenge for her and the tenants to coordinate. 
During the modernization efforts for the elderly, one of the family homes was made completely handicap 
accessible. 

After a tremendous turnout at a meeting held by the Housing Authority, board member Dan Gillis worked 
diligently to call a Special Town Meeting to request the town to vote on 150 units of affordable duplex 
housing on South Main Street, near the Wobum line. Dan was a firm advocate, of this affordable housing 
project with support from his board members. The articles petitioned for the Special Town Meeting covered 
the following: 

1. lifting the moratorium on the sale of town owned land, for the purpose of providing 
affordable housing; 

2. the transfer of 37 acres on Main Street to the Housing Authority for a duplex housing 
proposal; 

3. rezone the South Main Street site from General Industry of RIO. 

The article to lift the moratorium on the sale of town owned land, for the purpose of Affordable Housing 
passed, but the request for the transfer of 37 acres on Main Street failed, therefore the rest of the 
articles pertaining to this affordable housing site were withdrawn from the June 20th Special Town Meeting. 
\t the present time the town is looking to pursue another affordable housing project. 

\n article for conveyance of one of two parcels of land for the construction of a home for autistic children 
Tiet with approval and passed at the Annual Town Meeting. Design review process is proceeding with the 
Executive Office of Communities and Development for the development and construction of this home which will 
nopefully be built on Houghton Road within the next year. 

\fter two rounds of bidding for the $2,200,000. Elderly Complex, which commenced in July and ended in 
)ctober, groundbreaking for the 32 additional units of elderly housing took place in December, 1988. The 
lew housing will have two totally accessible handicap units, and the renovation of the community hall at 
3eming Way will also be made handicap accessible as part of the extensive modernization of the office, 
laundry, kitchen, restrooms, and maintenance building. Contract completion date is scheduled for November, 
1989. 

The Wilmington Housing Authority board members remained the same as in the previous year, with Chairman 
<evin McMillan, Vice-Chairman William Strob, Secretary Warren Newhouse, Treasurer Elaine Hachey and 
\ssistant Treasurer Dan Gillis. Office staff, consists of our Executive Director, Ella Belmore and 
Xdminstrative Assistance, Phyllis Tumsaroch. Edward Melanson is head of maintenace personnel. 

1988 has been a challenging year and 1989 should prove to be even more so as we move into the construction 
)f the 32 unit elderly complex, as well as a 7-bedroom home for autistic children.

Water & Sewer Department 



WATER 

The Edmund H. Sargent Water Treatment Plant is nearing completion and expects to be in service early 1989. The 
water main contract relative to the new Water Treatment Plant was awarded to Tomare Construction Corporation and 
construction was completed this fall except for final paving to be completed in the spring of 1989. 

The April 1988 Annual Town Meeting authorized the expenditure of 1.4 million dollars for a 3.0 million gallon 
water storage tank and connecting water mains. The storage tank is to be located on Town Forest land in North 
Wilmington. 

A "Master Water Plan" is being designed to plan for future water needs into the year 2010. 

Water Impact Studies were submitted by all developers for proposed subdivisions or commercial and industrial 
developments using in excess of 4,000 gallons of water per day. These studies were reviewed to determine the 
impact of the proposed development on the water requirements of the town. 

The Water Department purchased the former "Cranberry Bog" property on Shawsheen Avenue, The land purchased was 
approximately 60+ acres for $95,000. This property will allow for future well field development and groundwater 
protection. 

A water rate increase was reflected in the October 1988 water billing. This increase was necessary to cover 
increased operating costs and bonding for the new water storage tank and connecting water mains. 

Unpaid water and sewer charges for 1987, in the amount of $51,168.30, were committed as liens to the Tax 
Collector. 



The April 1988 Annual Town Meeting authorized the expenditure of $450,000 for engineering services to design the 
North/East sewer interceptor. This sewer design should be ready for review in the spring of 1989. 

Sewer Master Plan has been updated to conform with zoning changes. 

The Jacobs Street sewer has been completed and approved for sewer connections by the residents. 

A sewer rate increase was reflected in the October 1988 sewer billing. Most of the sewer rate increase was due 
to the sewer assessment charges from the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority. Charges for FY-89 are $389,353 

The Town of Wilmington has been notified by the Massachusetts D.E.Q.E. that all grant monies awarded to the town 
are currently on "hold" but the State will honor all grants when the monies are available in the State. 

It was with many regrets that the Water S Sewer Commissioners accepted the resignations of George R. Allan, 
Chairman of the Board. George had been a dedicated member of the Board of Water 5 Sewer Commissioners for 13 1/2 
years prior to his resignation October 15, 1988. The Commissioners would like to extend their thanks to George, 
on behalf of the Board and the Town for his many years of dedicated service, his expertise will be greatly 
missed. The Town Manager appointed Noel Baratta to fill the vacancy on the Board and Arthur R. Smith, Jr., was 
elected Chairman of the Board.

ELEMENTARY SYSTEMWIDE MILESTONES 

Report Cards: This past year has seen many changes in the elementary report card system. After extensive 
research of area tovms the report card committee recommended that elementary school students receive grades 
three times per year. 

The kindergarten report card reflects the content of the kindergarten curriculum and makes it easier for 
parents to understand the ability of their child to master certain skills. 

Perhaps the most significant changes are with the primary report card. This reporting system eliminates 
letter grades and marks the students on effort. The major subject areas are divided into many different 
skill areas. This system will assist students with self esteem and enable parents to better understand their 
child's strengths and weaknesses. 

The intermediate elementary report card has undergone some changes, but has primarily been updated to 
reflect the curriculum being taught. As with the primary report cards, these documents allow for students 
with special needs to be marked in certain subject areas. 

The committee will be reconvened to address any problems which might occur during this first year of 
implementation. The committee will also examine the interims being used by the elementary schools. 

The report card committee members include: 

Richard DeRosas Laura Stinson 

Anne Field Sandra Eraser 

Carol Folkins Nancy Murphy 

Patricia Lynch Katherine Barry 

Marjorie Quinlan Michele Nortonen 

Jean Latham Florence Kelley 

Robert Coffill Robert Arsenault 



Textbook Adoption: Two committees were formulated to review the current Social Studies and Mathematics 
programs in use in grades K-6. The committees, made up of classroom teachers and administrators, will 
preview new programs and materials prior to making a reconmendation relative to the continuance of our 
present program or the need for a new adoption. It is expected that those recommendations will be made 
during the Spring of 1989. 

Health Fair: A very successful systemwide Health Fair was conducted at the Wilmington High School 
gymnasium. The gymnasium was converted to represent the four major chambers of the heart. All schools and 
teachers presented units of study coordinating Science, Health and Social Studies. The Fine Arts Department 
gave performances that were heart related. The fair was coordinated by Norma Rushton, R.N., Head School 
Nurse. 

Testing: The Iowa Test of Basic Skills is administered to third and fifth grade students. Test scores have 
shown that the students at the elementary school level continue to do well in all areas except in math 
computation. Added emphasis is being placed in this area by all classroom teachers. The teachers purchased 
math materials to help solve this problem. 

All third grade students are required to take the Massachusetts Test of Basic Skills. Wilmington Public 
School students continue to do extremely well on these basic skills tests. 

All fourth grade students are required to take the Massachusetts Assessment tests. Assessment tests measure 
curriculum and not student progress. 

Kindergarten: During the Summer of 1987 a kindergarten curriculum for the Wilmington Public Schools was 
written. TEe kindergarten program's mail focus is to guide children to develop an understanding of the 
world around them. Through carefully designed activities the kindergarten acknowledges these differences 
and encourages the development of each child's potential. Throughout the kindergarten process the major 
goals are curiosity, desire to learn, confidence in learning ability, the skills to think critically, 
ability to use resources, appreciation of skills, development of memory, awareness of the value of 
knowledge, concentration, a willingness to take risks, and acquisition of general and factual knowledge. 

Kidsplace: After more than a year of planning and hard work, Kidsplace has become a reality. This very 
special playground, which was constructed last June, is now in full operation. One needs only to drive by 



-70- 



the site on any given day to see the amount of children enjoying themselves. The students of Wilmington are 
the beneficiaries. All of the monies and labor to build Kidsplace were donated. Special thanks to all 
tovmspeople who were so generous and worked so hard to complete this worthwhile project. 

Fun Club: Due to the availability of Kidsplace, the Fun Club, sponsored by the Billerica Boys/Girls Club, 
has been moved to the Shawsheen Elementary School for this academic school year. Students from all 
elementary schools in town are bused to the Shawsheen site for this program. This is an after school and 
vacation service for working parents. 

Gifted and Talented Program: Wilmington's Gifted and Talented Program (Project Enterprise) has entered its 
tenth year. This pull-out program services approximately one hundred students three hours per week in 
various locations in the specific buildings. The program has recently been expanded at the Woburn Street 
School on a trial basis to include participation in the Odyssey of the Mind Program , a national program 
which is designed to encourage creative teamwork. 



SHAWSHEEN SCHOOL 
Principal: Robert G. Coffill, Jr. 



Many new activities and programs involving students, parents, teachers, and the community have been 
initiated at the Shawsheen School this school year. In the following paragraphs we have highlighted some of 
the positive happenings at our school. 

Recycling Center: The Shawsheen School has been approved as a Bottle Redemption Center to collect soft 
drink bottles and cans. Each student will be given the opportunity to assist the Student Council at the 
Center located in the lower level of the Shawsheen School. All collections will take place before school 
hours. All monies raised will defray the expenses of the after-school and Saturday morning programs planned 
for Shawsheen students. A committee of parents will oversee distribution of funds and decide on programs to 
be offered. 



Science Olympiad: The fifth grade students at Shawsheen School are enrolled in the National Science 
Olympiad! Tnis contest allows the students to compete on both a national and state level. The top ten 
students at the Shawsheen School receive awards, with the top achiever receiving a special gold medal. 

Business Partnership: A partnership between area business and the school system has been initiated at the 
Shawsheen School. Donations are being solicited from business people to fund the After School and Saturday 
Morning Enrichment Programs at Shawsheen. Students will be able to select from several course offerings to 
be taught by parents. This program is modeled after the very successful After School Program held at 
Shawsheen in the Spring of 1988. 



Student Council: The following students were elected to the Student Council at the Shawsheen School for the 
1988-1989 school year:

WOBURN STREET SCHOOL 
Principal: Dolores Silva 

The Wobum Street School Student Council, which is made up of Shaun Collins as President, Chris Caruso as 
Vice President, David Bennett, Treasurer and Elise Boisvert, Secretary, and other council members are as 
follows: Colin Sullivan, Stephen Holland, Matthew Bogel, Paula DeCourcey, Stephen McMahan, Deana Ward, Doug 
Bonarrigo, Danielle Muraca, Chris DeJulia and Nicole Catanzano, are going to be involved in a special 
project. They will be working with the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. 
The Student Council will be collecting empty soda bottles and soda cans. The receipts will be given to help 
these unfortunate youngsters. 

The Art Club, at the Wobum Street School, under the direction of Mrs. Pearl McCarthy, meets every Friday 
morning. The Art Club is made up mainly of fifth graders and is designed to enable many students to have 
art experience. The Art Club has produced murals for the Annual Christmas Concert, paintings, scratchboard , 
etc. Future projects include low fire clay, shadow boxes and outdoor sketching.

The Woburn Street Chorus is composed of 125 fourth and fifth grade boys and girls. The chorus will be 
involved in the school spring musicial "Your A Good Man Charlie Brown." The chorus will also be making a 
musical video for K.T.V., the Woburn Street T.V. magazine. 

The P.A.C. of the Woburn Street School has embarked on another ambitious school year. They had a very 
successful Pumpkin Fair and this was followed by a candy sale and a Secret Santa Workshop. They were also 
very successful through much hard work by these parents. 

The Woburn Street School Improvement Council, made up of administrators, parents and staff members finalized 
the allocation of funds vrtiich was given by the state for educational purposes. The consensus of the parents 
and staff members was to use the funds for computers and enrichment programs. 

The tutorial program at the Woburn Street School consists of three six hour work days. The program is 
designed to give assistance to students, grades K-5, who do not qualify for academic support, namely; Title 
I or Resource Room, yet would benefit from added academic assistance. The referral for tutoring of a 
student originates from the classroom teacher and tutoring covers the vhole spectrum of the curriculum. 
This service also includes those youngsters who have failed their basic skills tests. Parental permission 
is required before a pupil may begin the tutorial program. This year the tutor is working with two 
non-English speaking students in grade five. 

WILDWOOD SCHOOL 
Principal: Michael Tikonoff 

The staff and administration of the Wildwood School received a grant from the Arts Collaborative in 
September of 1988. The grant was titled "The Artist in Residence Program". This project brought 
storytelling artist Betty Lehrman into the school for a forty day residency. Mr. Brian Smith coordinated 
the entire project. During the residency, children in grades K-5 met to develop story writing and telling 
techniques. A highlight of the residency was field trips to MIT's WMBR radio station so that children could 
record their original stories. 

The Wildwood School Improvement Council has developed an excellent plan for spending its Chapter 188 
allocations. The school has received many new instructional materials, i.e., computers, microscopes, and 
science equipment. The Council also appropriated partial funding for our Artist in Residence Program. 

The school's Playground Committee has been very active this year. A group consisting of parents, students, 
and teachers developed a plan called PAL (Play Areas for Learning). This group painted dozens of 
educational items throughout the playground area. Some of these areas are: The Hall of Presidents, 
Dinosaurs, Music Area, and Shapes and Money. The Committee also worked closely with Bob Palmer of the 
Highway Department in purchasing new equipment for the school. 

The Wildwood School Library has made some changes toward becoming a multi -media facility to serve the 
students and staff of the school. We have added new titles to our print collection, and have begun to 
integrate computer skills into our program. 

WILMINGTON HIGH SCHOOL 
Principal: Paul T. Fleming 

There were ZC graduates in the Class of 1988. Seventy-four percent of the class went or to either a two or 
four-year college. Pennsylvania State University, University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Boston College, 
Holy Cross, Tufts University, and the University of North Carolina are just a few of the schools which 
accepted our students for further study. 



The top ten students of the Class of 1988 were: 



David Patterson - University of Massachusetts/Amherst 

Douglas Peak - University of Rochester 

Susan Kill ilea - Holy Cross 

Jeffrey Murphy - Tufts University 

Angela Lin - Wesleyan University 

Anne Law - University of New Hampshire 

Paul DeFronzo - Bentley College 

Kristen Catanzano - Providence College 

Kimberly Bentley - University of New Hampshire 

Desiree Rowland - Stonehill College 

With Phase I of the refurbishment of the high school nearing completion, Wilmington High School students are 
beginning to enjoy wonderful new facilities in the areas of Science, Performing and Fine Arts, Physical 
Education, Athletics, and Industrial Arts. Local scholarship aid in 1988 totalled approximately $52,000. 
Student financial aid packages reported by students in the Class of 1988 totalled approximately $193,423. 

In 1988, the high school library continued to support the curriculum with library and research skills 
1^11^^^°^ ^ a variety of new materials, including paperback and hardbound books, newspapers and 
magazines, microfiche, computer software and video cassettes. With the addition of another computer and new 
audio-visual ec^iipment, we are becoming a true media center.

The Social Studies program helps students to learn to accept diversity as natural and to value human 
dignity, both attributes being essential to the preservation of the American way. 

The Business Department is committed to the offering of a curriculum that is continually updated to reflect 
traditional and current techniques required in our business oriented society. For example, computer 
technology instruction has been integrated into each of the courses within the Business Education 
curriculum. The newest and revolutionary equipment is the Desktop Publishing system. Received as the 
result of a proposal writing, this system will allow students to work with page composition programs which 
can blend text with graphics to create professional and attractive reports. 

The high school's Science wing is near completion. Maple storage cabinets, new laboratory tables, and a 
Vivarium, or plant and animal center, will be complete with the arrival of pieces of equipment procured from 
the warrant articles. 

The high school's prevocational course in Food Service trains youngsters to prepare for careers in 
restaurant work. 

The high school's Industrial Arts Department has refined its offerings to include Electronics, Car Care, 
Building to Scale, Silk Screen Printing, Basic Auto Repair, and a new CAD system for the Drafting program. 
All courses are available to both boys and girls. 

A major emphasis of the curriculum of the English Department continues to be the teaching of writing. At 
the high school the English office is the site of a Writing Lab for students who seek extra help on writing 
assignments. Three computers are available for use by students in the Lab or in their classes. In addition 
to enrollment in a year-long English course, students at course selection time are encouraged to select a 
course from a variety of English electives. In Grades 7 and 8 students are working on developing skills in 
writing, vocabulary, spelling, oral communication, listening skills, critical thinking skills and reading 
comprehension. Assignments are directed to prepare students for the Massachusetts Basic Skills Tests that 
are given in the Fall when students enter Grade 9. The English Department's summer reading program 
continues to work beautifully. 

"It's a Picasso." "No, it's a Goya." These were the words expressed by Spanish V students as they toured 
the Metropolitan Museum in New York. What they had been studying about in their Spanish class came alive as 
they saw the originals of many famous Spanish masterpieces during an all-day field trip to New York City. 
Latin II is being offered for the first time in almost a decade. Foreign Language instruction at the North 
Intermediate School is being enhanced by the acquisition of an Apple computer. Students are able to take 
advantage of a variety of foreign language programs that provide students with either remedial or enrichment 
work. Mr. Young's Spanish students were able to practice speaking Spanish with the "Tunas" who came to the 
West Intermediate School in November to perform before a crowd of four hundred people. The "Tunas" are a 
group of college students from Spain who spent their vacation time touring the United States dressed in 
medieval attire and singing many all-time favorite Spanish songs. 

READING/LANGUAGE ARTS DEPARTMENT 
Director: Mrs. Brenda Squire 

In response to the many requests for ideas and activities for helping children at home, a Reading/Language 
Arts Activities Newsletter was distributed monthly to all students in grades K-5. A daily activity is given 
for each day of the month. Three major goals stressed monthly are: reading orally to a family member for 
10-20 minutes; being read to nightly, and reading silently for 10-20 minutes. The calendar of activities 
has proved to be extremely enjoyable and beneficial. 

The Chapter I Reading Parent Advisory Council held three general meetings. An informational meeting was 
held in the Fall. The annual "Make and Take" winter workshop proved again to be a success. An oral 
presentation by the Chapter I students was given in the Spring. The Newspaper Committee published three 
newsletters which were helpful to parents and also kept parents informed throughout the year. The PAC 
officers for the 1987-1988 year were: 

Frances Przyjemski, Chairperson 

Linda Power, Vice Chairperson 

Alana Farino, Secretary 

Sharyn Devlin, Comptroller 

Paulette Kalagher, Newsletter Chairperson 

The Volunteer Reading Tutor Program was continued this year. These volunteers have served as reading tutors 
for several years: 



Lynn Gordon worked at the Shawsheen School in Anne Keeler's Grade 2 classroom. 

Judy Austin worked all year in Eileen Lemieux's Grade 2 classroom at the Wildwood School. 

Ruth Filipowicz worked at the Wobum Street School in Linda Marinel's and Marjorie Whelan's 
classrooms. Ruth is a fourteen year veteran of the VRT Program. 



-73- 



The VRTs were organized in April, 1973 under the direction of the Wilmington Reading Department in 
conjunction with the national Right to Read Program. Each volunteer works with one or two students for a 
half hour, two days a week. The tutors reinforced those reading skills that the classroom teachers felt 
would be most beneficial to each child. Last year the tutors were assigned to the Shawsheen, Wildwood and 
Woburn Street Schools. Those students who received tutorial services benefited greatly. Certificates of 
appreciation and thank you notes from the students were presented to each of the Volunteer Reading Tutors. 

The Seventh Annual Summer Reading Program, which is a cooperative effort between the Wilmington Memorial 
Library under the supervision of Mrs. Sarah Reuter, and the Wilmington Reading Department was held. The 
major objectives of this program were to encourage summer reading and visits to the public library. The 
theme for the Seventh Annual Summer Reading Program was Safari Summer. A kit consisting of a folder for 
logging in library visits and books read during the summer was given to each child who attended. Mrs. 
Reuter conducted story hours and other special activities throughout the summer. 

In September, a special Safari Summer Celebration was held in each elementary school. Reading activity 
booklets were distributed and certificates of participation were presented. The library reported extremely 
high circulation of books during the summer. Wilmington students are discovering the rewards of reading 
while on vacation. 

SPECIAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT 
Director: Mr. Cleo N. Fredette, Jr. 

During the last calendar year the Special Education Department examined its long standing involvement with 
the SEEM Collaborative. The Wilmington Special Education Department, in conjunction with the SEEM 
Collaborative, provides special education services to students with moderate to severe special needs. 
Specifically, the Special Education Department studied the feasibility of operating local programs for 
learning disabled students requiring substantially separate classes. After a review of all factors the 
Special Education Department recommended to the Superintendent and School Committee the provision of all 
substantially separate programs for learning disabled students be provided with the Wilmington Public 
Schools. The Special Education Department negotiated with the Collaborative to arrange the SEEM class 
configuration so as to provide for a scope and sequence for learning disabled classes covering the ages of 
six to eighteen in the school system. This provided for the return of approximately thirty-three Wilmington 
youngsters heretofore places in other SEEM communities back to the Wilmington School system. 

The new Wilmington learning disabled classes, which are located in the Shawsheen, North Intermediate and 
High School, began operation with the opening of schools in September 1988, servicing approximately forty 
students. The classes all operate on a language based curriculim model employing state of the art 
curriculum materials designed to assist students in all aspects of reading and language skills acquisition. 
The teachers staffing the program have been involved in the development of a complete scope and sequence of 
curriculum in the areas of reading, language arts and mathematics. Continued curriculum developnent will be 
pursued in the areas of social studies and science via summer curriculum workshops. 

PERFORMING AND FINE ARTS DEPARTMENT 
Director: Miss Lorraine Kalil 

Element ray Schools: More vital and creative in content, our Art and Music Programs in grades K-5 began a 
transition period in 1988. Through the efforts of administration and staff, the arts are becoming an 
integrated part of the school curriculum providing new dimensions and enrichment to social studies, language 
arts, reading, etc. Among our goals and objectives at all levels is that the arts take a acre inclusive 
role in the total education of our students. 

In addition to our regularly scheduled weekly art and general music classes, we offer the following: 
Recorder classes and ensembles beginning in grade three; Chorus is grades four and five; Art Club for the 
gifted and motivated students; and, last but not least, our Instrumental Program in grades three through 
five. 

Enrollment in the Instrumental Program is strictly voluntary but continues to grow in surprising proportion 
to our school population. In addition to offering instruction on band instruments, 1988 saw the return of 
the string program, and a very successful return it was. Our instrumental teachers at all levels work very 
closely together and with the entire staff so that there is the crucial continuous development of a 
comprehensive systemwide program. 

For further enhancement, field trips each year include the Museum of Fine Arts, the Nutcracker, the Boston 
Symphony among others. 

The Elementary Band continued to be one of the highlights of the Memorial Day Parade, and many of our 
orgainizations were proud to be a part of the Health Fair where they exhibited their unusual talents in 
developing the theme, "The Road To A Healthy Heart." 

Intermediate Schools - High School - Art, Music, Drama, Integrated Arts: Enjoying a snooth transition in 
programs at all levels we continued to offer general music and art classes at the intermediate schools in 
addition to instrumental lessons and Band, Art Club, and the informal components of dance and drama, which 
are most visible at the Winter and Spring Festivals of the Arts. 



-74- 



In addition to the usual field trips and school assemblies, some of the highlights of 1988 were entries in 
the Globe Scholastic Art Awards Program and in particular, the Days in the Arts Program at Tanglewood. For 
the latter, twelve sixth grade students who were unusually gifted in the Arts went to Tanglewood for five 
days in August. During their stay, they visited Norman Rockwell Museum, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, 
Shakespearean Theatre and Tanglewood where they not only attended concerts and activities but were 
privileged to experience many hands-on activities. The schedule and activities proved to be exhausting but 
most enjoyable for all who attended. 

At high school level. Band, Jazz Band, Concert Choir/Show Choir, Theatre Arts, Drama Club, Public Speaking, 
Media, and a host of Art classes. Photography, and Video continued to be favorites. Many of the courses 
offered are of a year's duration while others are one semester. Photography, as usual, was a much sought 
after course and is offered every period of the day. Art students participated in poster contests, Globe 
Scholastic Art Awards, Logo designs for business and industry, program covers for the Boosters Club, donated 
works to the Lahey Clinic/Hospital, local and school exhibits to name a few. 

Band, Jazz Band, and Choir participated in several local performances as well as School Concerts. All 
groups presented programs systemwide and aided in the recruitment program at all levels. Concert Choir and 
Show Choir saw a vastly increased enrollment and interest with new component of choreographys being added to 
musical selections. They are presently looking forward to participating in an "American Sings" Concert in 
Washington, D.C. where they will meet with choral groups from all over the country for individual and 
combined performances. 

Our Drama Club sent entries to the Globe Drama Festival where we went as far as the semi-finals with 
"Rehearsal for Murder" and to the Emerson Drama Festival with our entry of "Butterflies Are Free". The 
latter was the recipient of numerous awards including the best director award won by one of our high school 
seniors. 

In October, five of our high school students received accolades for their participation in programs and 
exhibits for Fire Prevention Week. At the invitation of the Fire Department, they wrote original material, 
made sock puppets, and presented the Puppet Show several times to the delight of young and old. 



PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND ATHLETICS 
Director: James Gillis 



The Physical Education Department continued to serve all students (K-12), as well as providing an adaptive 
program for students with special needs. The program sponsors a physical education "Mile Club" to encourage 
physical fitness in Grades 5 through 8. 

The health program in Grades 7-8, with the cooperation of the Science Department, emphasizes the importance 
of drug-alcohol education. 

The Physical Education Department cited several students for outstanding achievement in physical education:

Francis McLaughlin, School Committee member from Burlington from 1984-1988 resigned in October because of a move 
to Florida. Mr. McLaughlin was twice elected secretary of the board, serving in that role in 1987 and 1988. The 
District is saddened with the loss of this outstanding member and pleased with the appointment of Ms. McNeal. 

As one of twenty-six regional vocational technical school districts in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 
Shawsheen Valley Tech provides academic classes and comprehensive vocational /technical training for approximately 
twelve hundred forty secondary high school students from Bedford, Billerica, Burlington, Tewksbury and Wilmington. 

The year began with a significant step for vocational technical education, when the Vocational Technical Reform 
Act passed both branches of the Massachusetts State Legislature and was signed by Governor Michael Dukakis on 
January 13, 1988. This landmark legislation, co-authored by Charles Lyons, Shawsheen Tech 

Superintendent-Director, will increase state aid to the school, reducing assessments to local communities, and 
will provide the District with needed equipment grants. 

Unfortunately, funds were not appropriated by the legislature in FY-89. Shawsheen Valley Tech continues to work 
towards this end, with Mr. Lyons having made a presentation to the state's local aid force. The District School 
Committee appreciates the enthusiastic support of the residents of the District to help with passage of this 
important piece of legislation. 

In June of 1988, three hundred nineteen students graduated with more than ninety-seven percent either acquiring 
jobs within their skilled professions or pursuing higher education. Seniors were awarded over 75 scholarships 
and awards, including four Commonwealth scholarships, and a Robert Byrd Scholarship. There are only ten Byrd 
Scholarship recipients in each Congressional District. 



Shawsheen Valley Students and the five communities again benefited from the wide variety of projects students 
undertook for individuals, municipal and non-profit organizations. Individuals have the opportunity to see the 
talents and dedication of our students and instructors; organizations not only receive quality work, but save 
thousands of taxpayer dollars by using school services. Students have the opportunity to perform real-world work 
for actual customers. 

One major undertaking for the school year was the house building project. Shawsheen students from Carpentry, 
Electrical, Plumbing, and Masonry, under the direct supervision of their individual shop instructors, 
successfully constructed a split-level house in Bedford for Mr. and Mrs. Roger Wilson. Each year, since 1970, 
Shawsheen Valley Technical students have built a house within the five member towns. Interested residents are 
urged to contact the school directly to secure rules of eligibility. 

Students in other vocational programs contributed their talents to the towns in the school district in numerous 
ways. Maintenance Mechanics and Masonry students built four park benches for the Tewksbury Garden Club. 
Maintenance Mechanic students installed fourteen sliding glass doors at the Billerica Dog Pound, and repaired 
fire axes and hooks for the districts's fire departments. The Masonry shop built a brick and block electrical 
room to house controls for a new scoreboard at the Marshall Middle School in Billerica, and ceramic tiled two 
bathrooms at Burlington High School, repaired the steps for the VFW in Billerica and installed two new access 
doors at the Billerica Boys Club. 

Metal Fabrication students built, repaired and serviced equipment for the five towns. For the Billerica Fire 
Department, they made Scott air pack hooks and heavy duty coat hangers and repaired emergency door openers. The 
Tewksbury School Department benefited from repaired and spruced-up desks, chairs, lockers and baskets. Students 
built hose cabinets for the Bedford forestry fire truck and welded brackets for the Wilmington Department of 
Public Works. 



Vocational Projects 



-77- 



The Machine Technology Department has completed a variety of projects, services and repairs for the District Fire 
Departments, Police Departments, and Water Departments. 

Technical Illustrating/Commercial Art created covers for both the Billerica Annual Report and the Billerica 
Finance Committee Report. Students designed posters for the Billerica Health Department and the Wilmington 
Family Council Services. 

Awards to Health. Business Tech 

Health Technology students participated in the Bedford Health Fair. They demonstrated the electrocardiogram, and 
did Heart Risk Factor Assessments on the participants. The Lahey Clinic affiliation was expanded to include 
sophomores working as Health Assistants on the clinical units. The seniors continued doing extemships in the 
ambulatory care clinics, electrocardiography, and phlebotomy areas. 

The Health Technology Advisory Committee has been nominated for outstanding service by the Massachusetts 
Department of Education. The Lahey Clinic has been nominated for the outstanding co-operative employer.- 
Nominees, representatives from the Lahey Clinic, St. Johns's Hospital, New England Rehabilitation Hospital and 
other area medical facilities, along with staff members from the Health Technology Department were honored at the 
First Annual Awards Banquet for Business and Industry held recently. 

The Business Tecbjiology program at Shawsheen provides valuable training for students in the workplace. As part 
of the students' preparation for the business world, they acted as Open House guides. Craft Advisory secretaries, 
library aids, and mailroom clerks. Students from this department are also responsible for the operation of the 
school store, which included management, inventory, stocking shelves and sales. 

The highlight of the school year was the Business Technology Annual Awards Assembly held in June. Students were 
cited for their skill accomplishments, along with honors for the many VICA (Vocational Industrial Club of 
America) awards they had received during district and state competitions. This year, Business Tech instructor, 
Linda Kane LeClair was honored by the presentation of The Exemplary Teacher of the Year award. 

Academic Updates 

In academic areas, Shawsheen' s curriculum updates continued to insure that the needs of all our students were 
met. The School continues to offer a quality academic program that affords students the opportunity to attend 
colleges and universities throughout the United States. In the Science program a new senior course, a 
comprehensive review of life science, was added, giving seniors another option to meet the science requirement 
for both high school graduation and college application. The science department is looking forward to initiating 
a school-wide science fair this year. 

The Physical Education Department welcomed Mr. William Ritchie back from a one year leave of absence. Staff 
members attended seminars to expand our school-wide fitness testing. 

In the Social Studies Department, all ninth graders embarked on a world geography program. A staff member 
received a Horace Mann Grant to broaden the curriculum for seniors, resulting in an expanded program in civics, 
appropriate for this election year. 

The Math Department and English Department expanded the curriculum to meet the needs of students having to 
satisfy the Commonwealth's Basic Skill Testing. Technical Math was added to Grade 12. 

Craft Advisory Committee 

Over 300 local businessmen and women continued to serve on the Craft Advisory Committees which oversee curriculum 
and recommend equipment needs in each vocational/technical area. Historically, local business have always 
employed at least 72 percent of each graduating class, with that class of Shawsheen Tech graduates earning and 
contributing more than three million dollars annually to the local economy. The Class of 1988 was no exception. 
These students benefited from the close cooperation of local business people who serve as members of the Craft 
Advisory Committees. Through this supportive relationship, students learn not only from their instructors, but 
from the expertise of these advisors, and receive excellent employment opportunities through their efforts. Upon 
graduation, there are approximately five job offers for every graduate who fulfills the curriculum requirements. 

Adult Training 

Shawsheen Tech continues to serve the needs of district towns through its Adult Education program vAiich attracted 
more than 650 people this year to a variety of courses and career training opportunities. 

In the Health field, Shawsheen, with St. John's Hospital and the Lahey Clinic, trained welfare recipients as 
Medical Assistants and E.K.G. Test Technicians. Lahey Clinic in Burlington provided the inter-training site for 
those who received classroom and laboratory training in medical assisting at Shawsheen. 

Shawsheen Adult Technical Institute in collaboration with Alpha Industries, Altron, Inc., Dynamics Research 
Corporation and Bay State Skills Corporation funded a $100,000 dollar training program for adults in Electronic 
Test Technician and Microwave Bonding programs. 

Thirty-two unemployed adults were retrained and placed in jobs through this offering.

Project Space 



awsheen Tech continues to expand its involvement with the tovms through Project S.P.A.C.E., a gifted and 
lented program for students in Grades 7-12. Students can research and develop projects in Environmental 
chnology and Robotic Electronics. During 88-89, S.P.A.C.E. will expand to include Computer Aided Design in 
afting, Drama Workshops, and Microcomputer Programming. 

e major accomplishment in the data processing area during the past year has been the implementation of a new 
nancial system. This system is made up of a large number of programs which allows us to completely eliminate 
e manual bookkeeping system. Purchase orders, invoices, vendors, budget, and payroll are all integrated into 
is system. Checks are cut by computer for employees and payroll vendors. A payroll history is maintained for 
ch employee, showing all deductions and earnings, broken down by each payroll period. These programs have 
ved many man hours in the financial area as well as improving the availability of up-to-date information for 
nagement control. 

nsiderable progress has been made in student scheduling through this new system. Future plans include . 
corporating guidance information, grades, absentee records, biographical data, and course availability listings.

are particular to the Town. This division dilutes representation in such issues as the Reading Municipal 
Light Department situation which is unique to the Town of Wilmington; 
or do anything in relation thereto. 

Finance Committee recommendations - Question 1 No § Question 2 Yes 

Moderator Michael Caira, felt that the message being sent to the Legislature would be as effective with a 
vote of the entire body without going thru the entire procedure of a secret ballot and re-checking in of 
voters. After some discussion, John Sanborn asked that we move the question, was seconded and so voted to 
do so, a voice vote was then taken and Question #1 was Unanimously voted No and Question #2 was voted with 
all but one voter voting Yes 

THE MESSAGE WILL BE SENT TO LET THE LEGISLATURE KNOW THAT WE ARE NOT HAPPY AND THAT WE DO NOT WANT ANY 
FURTHER SEPARATION OF THE TOWN OF WILMINGTON IN THE FUTURE. 

With all articles acted upon the the Moderator asked for a motion to adjourn the Second Special Town Meeting 
Meeting Motion was made and seconded, and so voted The meeting was adjourned at 3:45 P.M.

MOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 



June 30, 1988 



Sfary- of Significant Accounting Policies 

The accotmting policies for financial reporting purposes of the Town of WilaingtOT 
conform to generally accepted accounting principles for local governmental units except 
as indicated in Note 2. The following is a su»ary of the significant accounting 
policies: 

A. Fund Accouiting 

The town reports its financial activities in several funds and one account group 
in order to comply with the limitations and restrictions placed on both the 
resources made available to the town and the services provided. The various funds 
are grouped in the financial statements in this report into five generic fund 
types and two broad fund categories as follows: 

GOS-HWgNT.AL FUNDS 

General Fund - The general fund is the general operating fund of the town. It is 
used to accoimt for all financial resources except those required to be accounted 
for in another fund. 

Special Revenue Fund - General Revenue Sharing - This special revenue fund is 
used to accoiait for the proceeds of the State and Local Fiscal Assistance Act and 
their exp)enditures as prescribed by the Office of Revenue Sharing. 

Special Revenue Funds - Others - This special revenue fund is used to account for 
the proceeds of specific revenue resources (other than general revenue sharing, 
expendable trust or major capital projects) that are legally restricted to 
expenditures for specific purposes. 

Capital Projects Fund - This fund is used to account for the purchase or 
construction of major capital facilities. 

FIDUCIARY FUNDS 

Trust and Agency Fuids - Trust and agency fisids are used to account for assets by 
the town in a trustee capacity or as an agent for individuals, private 
organizations, other governments and/or other funds. These include expendable 
trust, non- expendable tnist and agency funds. Non- expendable trust funds are 
accounted for in a mamer that permits the periodic measurement of revenues 
earned, expenses incurred and/or net income in order to demonstrate maintenance of 
capital. Expendable trust funds are accounted for in essentially the sajne manner 
as govemaental funds. Agency funds are custodial in nature (assets equal 
liabilities) and do not involve measurement of results of operations. 

ACCOUNT GROUP 

Long-Term Debt and Liabilities - Long-term liabilities expected to be financed 
from govemaental funds are accumulated in the general long- term debt group of 
accounts. This accouit group is not a fund. It is only concerned with the 
measurement of financial position and, therefore, is not involved with a 
measurement of the results from any operations. 



The accompanying financial statements have been prepared principally on the 
modified accnial basis of accoimting. This method recognizes revenues when they 
become measurable and available. Expenses are recognized under this method as 
they are incurred. 

Revenue Recognition - Property tax revenues are recognized tAen they become 
available. Available means then due or past due and receivable within the currCTit 
period or expected to be collected soon enough thereafter to be used to pay 
liabilities of the current period. 

All other revenues are recognized throughout the year when cash is received. 
Receipts during the sixty days immediately following the close of the fiscal year 
are also recognized as available revenue. 



B. Basis of Accounti 




-119- 



In applying the susceptible to accrual concept to intergovernmental revenues, the 
legal and contractual requirements of the numerous individual programs are used as 
guidance. There are, however, essentially two types of these revenues. In one, 
monies must be expended on the specific purpose or project before any amounts will 
be paid to the town, therefore, revenues are recognized based upon the 
expenditures recorded. In the other, monies are virtually unrestricted as to 
purpose of expenditure and are usually revocable only for failure to comply with 
prescribed compliance requirements. These resources are reflected as revenues at 
the time of receipt or earlier if the susceptible to accrual criteria is met. 

Expenses - Expenditures are recorded during the year on a cash disbursement 
basis. In addition, as required by Massachusetts General Laws, disbursements made 
during the fifteen days inmediately following the close of each fiscal year and 
which pertain to the prior year are recorded as warrants payable and expenses as 
of June 30th. 

Purchase orders outstanding at June 30th related to annual operating expenses are 
recorded as encumbrances and, accordingly, as a reservation of fund balances at 
that date. 

Deferred Revenue - Property taxes and other revenues that are measurable but not 
available have been classified as deferred revenue on June 30, 1987. 

Departures from Generally Accepted Accounting Principles 

For years prior to 1985, the town presented its financial statements on the basis of 
accounting practices prescribed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Department of 
Revenue. These practices differed in many significant respects from G.A.A.P. 

During 1981. the Commonwealth of Massachusetts issued a revised uniform municipal 
accounting system entitled "U.M.A.S." The departures from G.A.A.P. under this revised 
system have been significantly narrowed. The town has adopted a modified U.M.A.S. for 
its financial statement presentation for 1985. 

The significant departures from G.A.A.P. included in the Town of Wilmington's financial 
statements are: 

a. Retirement benefits are provided for on a "pay-as-you-go" basis rather than an 
acceptable acturarial cost methods (see note 5). 

b. General fixed asset acquisitions are recorded as expenditures at the time 
purchases are made rather than being capitalized in a general fixed asset group of 
accounts. 

c. Purchases for materials and supplies inventories are recorded as expenditures 
rather than assets at the time of purchase.
